Typical presentations of cranial base tumors include cranial neuropathies such as double vision, facial pain, vision loss, or swallowing difficulty; pituitary/hypothalamus dysfunction, seizures, brain or brainstem compression including personality changes, weakness, coordination; and headache. Clinical manifestations are variable and largely dependent on the anatomic location, size, and extent of edema, and prognosis is likewise dependent on the histology and location of the tumor.

Stroke & Vascular Disorders
Aortic arch atherosclerosis is a known cause of ischemic stroke, with plaques measuring 4 mm or greater carrying the highest risk. Stroke often tends to be left hemispheric due to the location of plaque within the aorta. The highest risk for embolic stroke occurs when aortic atheromas have mobile components or are hypoechoic or ulcerated.

Headache & Pain
Fibromyalgia is a chronic diffuse or multifocal pain syndrome characterized by muscle pain and generalized burning, throbbing, or tingling in the body, typically of gradual onset, and usually not progressive. Patients report widespread, functionally limiting pain, and may exhibit signs of global sensory hyperresponsiveness. Etiology may involve dysregulation of pain processing in the central nervous system resulting in central hypersensitivity.
